We all have parts of our life that we would like to change. There are parts of our personality or the way we look that we desire to be different. Perhaps you would like more wealth in your life, and to attain it by doing your dream job. Or maybe you would love the power to change some difficult people or circumstances in your life.
As I began to reflect on this, I thought of the movie “The Wizard of Oz.” It’s one of my favorite movies, and I’ve seen it countless times. In the film, Dorothy is in the wonderful land of Oz. However, she has this unending desire to return home to her farm in Kansas. She is given direction on how she can get home and goes through some difficult and even life-threatening steps to make it happen. After all that she goes through, she is told by Glenda the good witch that she had had the power to get home all along, courtesy of the ruby slippers she was wearing.
Imagine that. She almost had herself and others killed as she persisted in her desire to get back home (not a bad desire in any way), and it was all unnecessary. She had the power all along that would have gotten her there, but she didn’t know it. Can I be Glenda for you today? If you are seeking the power for a more satisfying life, for more money, more energy, positivity, joy, romance, or whatever it is l can tell you that you already have the power to make it happen.
Now as you look down and realize you’re not wearing ruby slippers, you may be wondering where that power is. Please allow me to share some quotes with you, and then I will bring it all together. Luke 17:22 says “the kingdom of God is in your midst.”The amplified version of the same verse says, “the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you].” The kingdom of God consists of God, His spirit, and all of His power. I studied the word midst closer, and the definition says in the middle of or the core of. When Jesus says that the kingdom is in your midst, I believe that according to that definition, He is saying that it is the core of who you are, your very essence. I Corinthians 2:16 says that we have the mind of Christ. I love how the expanded version says it… “But we have the mind of Christ [ the Holy Spirit reveals God and his ways to us; Rom. 11:34].” I find it humbling and amazing that we have access to God and His ways! His power and knowledge goes along with that.
To put this in more simple and worldly terms, I share a quote from mind expert Joseph Murphy and his book “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”. “Within your subconscious depths lie infinite wisdom, infinite power, and infinite supply of all that is necessary which is waiting for development and expression. Begin now to recognize these potentialities in your deeper mind, and they will take form in the world without.” He then continues… “The infinite intelligence within your subconscious mind can reveal to you anything you need to know at any moment of time and point provided you are open-minded and receptive.” (p. 13)
Some believe the mind of Christ mentioned in the Bible is synonymous with the subconscious mind. Others would say the subconscious is the bridge from our own mind to the Christ mind. Regardless, we all have it. Now I know some of you may be finding my title a bit misleading. Hey Joe, you said you were going to show us how to find unlimited power. Ok, I get it. Don’t worry, I won’t let you down. Do you want to know how to find unlimited power? Here’s my simple answer. Know that you already have it. The verses above show that the kingdom of God is in every one of us, and so is the mind of Christ. WE ALL HAVE IT!! The key is to know this and begin to utilize it. There are so many people in the world today who feel powerless. I’ve been there myself too. However, I have learned that no one on this planet can say they are powerless. Every person has the same amount of power. No more, no less. The most successful people are the ones that tap into that power and use it for good.
The good news is you can immediately begin using this amazing power you have. Know that you have it, and know that God is with you at every second. Another key to tapping into this power is by using your conscious thinking mind to feed the subconscious. I have shared in other articles how to use visualization and positive affirmations to embed powerful truths into the subconscious. Once they are embedded in the subconscious they become beliefs. Once they become beliefs, they are acted out and become circumstances. The more positive the beliefs are, the more positive the circumstances are.
Once again I will remind you. You have incredible, unlimited power available to you right now. Use it well, and your life will be full of abundance, joy, and love. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
